Pablo Neruda #7: 20 Love Poems

Every day for the next 20 days leading to Valentine's Day, I will be sharing bits of Pablo Neruda's TWENTY LOVE POEMS (VEINTE POEMAS DE AMOR).

Here's the 7th counting down to the celebration of ♥...

X. WE HAVE LOST EVEN

Stories to tell you on the shore of evening,
sad and gentle doll, so that you should not be sad.
A swan, a tree, something far away and happy.
The season of grapes, ripe and fruitful season
.

Historias que contarte a la orilla del crepúsculo,
muñeca triste y dulce, para que no estuvieras triste.
Un cisne, un árbol, algo lejano y alegre.
El tiempo de las uvas, el tiempo maduro y frutal.
